Scott Spaulding with the State of Florida Division of Recreation and Parks presented the City of Mascotte with a check for $100,000 Monday recently. The check represents the city being awarded two state grants for $50,000 each, one for Civic Center Park and the other for Comunicasa Park.
The 100 percent State Funded Grants that requires no match from the city will be used to refurbish and rebuild the two city parks, explained City Manager Jim Gleason. The two park projects will be completed in the upcoming fiscal year that began October 1 and ends September 30, 2017.
"We were pleased to be awarded the two grants of $50,000 each and once the projects are completed will apply and hope to receive future grants for the city's softball field, Little League fields and Sunset Lake Park.
